Movie Info

A biker gang incites a reign of terror in a California coastal town that culminates in four teenage girls being raped. Vietnam veteran Billy Jack (Tom Laughlin) has had enough, however, and takes on the depraved bikers single-handedly. He rescues young Vicky Barrington (Elizabeth James) from their clutches, but then has to contend with not only the thugs, but also the ineffectual and racist local lawmen, who have it out for the half-Native American Billy.

Audience Reviews for Born Losers

  • Nov 27, 2012
    It's interesting to compare "Billy Jack" and "Born Losers," and see how star/director Tom Laughlin tweaked the formula between films. "Born Losers" has minimal karate, and there's little sense of Laughlin having any serious training in the discipline. He also hadn't quite nailed down his signature gimmick of smiling patiently in the face of provocation, and making the audience anticipate the coming meltdown. Billy Jack still faces anti-Injun prejudice, but "Born Losers" doesn't add elements of Indian culture like later Billy Jack vehicles. "Born Losers" also has less of a rousing, anti-establishment feel, because Billy Jack is mostly vying with loathsome outlaw bikers rather than everyday townsfolk. On the positive side, "Born Losers" is much less preachy and pretentious, and cute lead actress Elizabeth James is more appealing than Laughlin's later co-star (and wife) Delores Taylor.

    Billy Jack is awesome, I think this is my favourite of the series, it has Billy fighting bikers who are making trouble for a girl. It's pretty cool, check it out.

    First appearance of Billy Jack isn't as preachy and more action based.
